Lincoln Park, Boston, USA
The densely populated city of Somerville, MA has limited space for outdoor activities. So, a creative solution was needed to develop an area where residents of all age groups could socialize and become active.

The final product was a custom space with varied equipment, including a unique play tower for children to climb up & a specialized rope bridge for playgrounds for them to traverse across.
Ramsden Park, Toronto, Canada
The landscape architect behind the new playground in Ramsden Park, Toronto, had the vision to create something new and exciting, but through including something old. By old, she meant incorporating both the city’s heritage and some time-tested favorites from the existing KOMPAN playground. The new playground uses yellow colors and themes from Toronto’s history of brick and has maintained several of the timeless play items from the old playground, like the iconic Crazy Hen. After giving years of pleasure in its former location, the first of the revolutionary springers is still in great shape and has become part of the new playground.
